but yes, we go through the citizen/caricom line, if we want to.
That snake was a much appreciated improvement

You can gain citizenship by descent and then you can apply on behalf of your children.

Your husband can gain permanent residence - as a man married to a "bajan" woman that is what he can get. For a woman married to a bajan man - she can get citizenship.

Hi Nikki

You don't say when you're planning to move to Barbados but if it's in a year or so, your best bet is to try and get your citizenship here in the UK before you go. My daughter and I have just submitted the forms into the Barbados High Commission in London in May and it was all pretty straight forward. Just a matter of waiting now to be granted dual nationality.

You could email the High Commission. [email protected], or ring 020 76314975 for advice and paperwork. You will also need to book an interview with the Commissioner once your paperwork has been completed.

Sorry, can't help you with regard to work permits.

Hope it helps anyway.

Hi Nikki

You will need to ring the High Commission in London and make an appointment for you and your family to see the Commissioner or his deputy. You will need to take your paperwork with you plus your British passports, birth certificates, marriage certificates etc. Oh and the fees.

My circumstances was slightly different to yours in that my husband is a Bajan national but both our daughter and myself are British, I'm sure they will advise you when you call for an appointment.

I was told it would take between 6-12 months before we are given citizenship, but I'm not holding my breath

I have dual Canadian and Barbadian Citizenship - no problem. Barbados does not require surrendering another passport to gain citizenship.
